Oktoberfest-Dressed Up Sauerkraut

Making sauerkraut at home is a smelly process that produces a kraut that's not any better than what most fresh, store bought Krauts offer. Store bought sauerkraut provides a perfect base for this dressed up version of the classic condiment. You can find fresh sauerkraut in most grocery stores in or near the deli section (Boar's Head makes a good one).

Dressed up Sauerkraut

4-6 slices bacon
1 onion grated or diced
1 large russet potato, grated
1 large tart apple, peeled and grated (Granny Smith's work well)
3/4 cup chicken broth
2 cups sauerkraut

Fry bacon in a large skillet until crispy. Add onions, potato to bacon drippings and saute until onions are cooked. Stir in grated apple, chicken broth and sauerkraut and simmer for 45 minutes
